* Reduce feed rate by around 30% in case of long / extra long tools.
** Increase speed by 25% for coated tools.
 
Formulae
Cutting Speed
=
(p x Dia. Of cutter x RPM) 1000
Feed in mm/rev.
=
Feed (mm) / Tooth x No. of flutes
Feed in mm/min.
=
RPM x Feed (mm) / rev.
Cutting time
=
Cutting Length ÷ Feed (mm) / min.
